Let's Make Robots!

I am a beginner

I would not know much about the robot, who has a detailed description about robots? Thanks!(about  Hardware)

Atmega + camera.

I have thought about atmega + camera idea too, but for use on atmega not sending. I looked at CMUcam but it wasn't so low-cost as it was advertised (100$ it too much). I found http://www.robotshop.us/sfe-cmos-camera-640-480.html . It seems cheap, microcontroller friendly and so on. Only problems are - SMD connections, killer programming and impossible debuging.

 

So, all thoughts and good links are welcome.

Make robots talk.. to each other.. dirt cheap!

I have this thing in the back of my mind that "the next step" for me must be my robots talking to each other.

IR and Ultrasonic

is it possible to connect GP2Y0A21YK0F ir sensor as a obstacle avoiding and SRF005 as motion detection? btw im using picaxe28x

Anyone seen any links to using a lathe /mill machine to make a robot.

I have only found ONE link searching the whole web. I recently bought a 7X10 lathe/mill machine and would like to use it to work on my robots, but no info except general operations.  Any links would be apreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Simple Control of a DC speed controller

Hi.

I'm about to purchase 2x 12V motor speed controller to drive a remote control golf trolley (4QD Porter). They can be controlled via 0-5K resistor or 0-3v. I want to use a picaxe 28 to control the speed, what would be the easiest way to control them ?

I would prefer not to have a servo mechanically driving a pot, is there a simple solution.

Please assume total ignorance, i am very new to this.

Many thanks.
